Second-year UDFA Joplo Bartu is running as the Falcons' starting inside linebacker next to Paul Worrilow at training camp.

Both Bartu and Worrilow are second-year undrafted free agents who struggled as rookies. Pro Football Focus graded Worrilow as a bottom-ten inside linebacker last season, among 55 qualifiers. Bartu showed well in run defense, but was the league's third worst 4-3 outside linebacker in pass coverage per PFF. We'll be sure to target Atlanta's defense in fantasy matchups this season.
